Gary Nicholson (from the album The Great Divide available on Blue Corn Music)
Gary Nicholson and his guitar stand firmly planted in current events as he sings of The Great Divide, the recent release that collect stories for our times. The pen of Gary Nicholson can see clearly in the now, making hard luck and trouble an easily surmountable obstacle on the rock’n’roll honky tonk of “Hallelujah Anyhow” as he tenderly offers a balm for strife with simple notions in “Choose Love”. The modern world offers lot of material for stories and while Gary Nicholson chronicles the present he looks towards moments in the not-too-distant past, turning the pages on times when helping others mattered with “Soft Spot” while the racism of ignorance gets a voice in “Blues in Black and White”.
Faith is strong when Gary Nicholson opens The Great Dividealongside guest vocalist Ruthie Foster in “God Help America”. A percussive thump is the groove when Gary Nicholson introduces “Immigrant Nation” and erases the lines touched on with The Great Dividealbum title by linking humanity by a shared walls in “The Troubles”. How we got here it not as important as where we land and Gary Nicholson becomes the pied piper leading a Country Blues conga line through “Trickle Down”, uses real life stories as a bridge over The Great Dividetitle track, and solemnly finds the answer within reach, feeling the power of a world united in “We are One”.
